Is it Wednesday already! I've been so busy lately. Parents arrived around lunch time last Thursday, had lunch then my mom and I hit the greenhouses. My father brought his new video camera and on the way to the car I looked up and there he was taking a video of our progress. I yelled for him to stop, he wouldn't, so I put my large purse in front of my face. Let me tell you it's not easy to walk with your face covered. We came back with our arms full of annuals and as I was coming through the gate, there he was with the video camera again. I put the plants down and grabbed the hose, pointed it at him and threatened to use it. Ok, ok, he says, and that was the end of that! lol.
Friday arrived. In the afternoon a couple of people stopped by to see the parents which was great as my dad gets really bored when he's here. He's a mall walker! No malls in this area I'm afraid. We had a lovely afternoon, coffee and lots of cookies. I've never eaten so many before...argh...my mom brings lots of sweets when they come. Then that evening more company came, more sweets, but it was a good day. They left early Saturday morning and phoned when they arrived home saying they saw a momma bear with two cubs along the way. I asked my dad if he got a video of them, No, he says, he didn't want to stop. Says he's sorry now he didn't.
Sunday we were invited to Brunch at a friends house. A nice crowd of us there and what a spread of food, wow. Lots of different breads, cheeses, beans, scrambled eggs, buns, fruits, jams, I could go on and on. It was fantastic.
Monday we had an appointment with a new dentist, wasn't happy with the one we had. He's from Romania and a very nice young man. I had a couple of small cavities and he had a problem getting the teeth frozen. I was not happy! This has never happened to me before. Anyway, all in all it wasn't too bad. Got home around supper time. I was beat, it was a long day.
Yesterday I spent the day in the garden potting up plants, etc. Just stopped long enough for lunch and supper. There is some colour in the garden now. Not much yet mind you, but enough to give me joy.
Only noticed a little beastie in this flower when I took it off camera.
Primrose, I think!
I can never think of the name of this one....anyone know??
